Remember that you are talking to the one being who has all of the information in the universe. You are not capable of understanding everything. Some things are too complicated.
BEGIN YOUR JOURNEY TO PEACE.
God asked you to love yourself, others and God all the time. God knows that this is the only way to happiness, joy and peace. But as we go through life, we pick up bad habits that make us miserable. We lie, gossip, eat too much, drink too much, treat our mother or father disrespectfully, etc. As you draw closer to God, you will want to leave more and more of this sin behind.
You will want to purify yourself so you can move closer to God, and become more like God. God becomes the example you want to follow.
In purification you become aware of the sin that keeps you away from God. The more you purge yourself of these behaviors, the closer you get to God. Sin by sin, problem by problem, you remove the things that stand in the way of your connection.
There is no room for pride here. You will feel humble before God, but you will not feel bad about yourself. God will correct you without you feeling as though something is wrong with you. Everybody makes mistakes, that is a part of life. When other people criticize us, we can feel worthless and bad.
This will not happen with God. God forgives your sin and gives you another chance. Many mystics carried purification to the extreme. They abhorred all desires of the flesh, refused to smell a flower, wore rocks in their shoes, gave away their possessions, ate garbage, did what they hated, refused to do what they wanted. Teresa enjoyed only one worldly thing. She occasionally spoke with friends through the convent grille.
She became aware that this pleasure distracted her from the union she desired with God so she gave it up. Underhill John of the Cross abhorred all manner of possession and gave no concern for these goods, neither for food, clothing, nor any other created thing. Do you have to go to these extremes to get close to God? Only God knows the way.
Many people have to be humbled to come to this truth. We all need to spend time on the obstacle course of self-will run riot.
Once we are beaten, and turn our will and our lives over to God, life begins to get good. The purpose of this cleansing is to draw closer to God.

Jesus told us we would experience life in full if we love God with our entire mind, body, and spirit. At some point, God will stretch your faith to the breaking point. At this point, God seems to disappear, leaving you alone. This is what St. John of the Cross calls the dark night of the soul.
Here you feel overwhelmed by a feeling of abandonment by God. This is the death of self, wanting nothing, desiring nothing. When there is no more of you left, God delivers His best--union. In union you join with God in an even finer way than before. In union you become as much like God as possible while retaining your self Underhill Meister Eckehart reports on his union experience: "The knower and the known are one.
God and I, we are one in knowledge. There is no distinction between us" Benton p. There the fire of God's presence is experienced…" O'Connor p. And all the persecutions, with which the world and the Devil can attack them, slide under their feet, standing, as they do, in the waters of many tribulations and temptations, and do not hurt them, for they remain attached to Me by the umbilical cord of fiery desire Catherine of Siena p. You will experience bits and pieces of union along your journey, the sweet tempting taste of God is the culmination of your existence.
Blending into God is pure indescribable joy. Teresa details her experience. During the short time the union lasts, she is as it were deprived of every feeling, and even if she would, she could not think of any single thing In short, she is utterly dead to the things of the world and lives solely in God God establishes Himself in the interior of this soul in such a way, that when she returns to herself, it is wholly impossible for her to doubt that she has been in God, and God in her.
Teresa translated by Bouix, p. Union is where truth, goodness, and beauty reach total perfection. What are you going to do?

What is your decision? Do you want to communicate with your God? Are you willing? I want you to think about some things. All spirituality has, at its core, what is already inside you. Inside you there is goodness. In all cultures, this goodness is expressed in the moral law. Immanuel Kant stated, "Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing awe and admiration the more frequently and continuously reflection is occupied with them; the starred heaven above me and the moral law within me" Pelikan p.
If a stranger were drowning in a lake, this law would motivate you to help. Instinctively, you would be driven to help, even put your own life at risk.

The moral law transcends the instinct for survival. This law is exactly the same everywhere. In all cultures, to lie is wrong. Even among thieves, honesty is valued.
